Exclusive Preview: “Revolutionaries” #4
The Iron Klaw has the Predacons hang out behind his throne just for visual effect. Dude is one chill villain.
I don't follow IDW, so I'm bound to be confused, but this is just baffling me so much. Is the Hearts of Steel series canon in the IDW-verse now, or is that synopsis for the wrong comic?
They weren't canon, but Hearts of Steel Bee appears on next issues(?) cover so between that and the solicitations they are being integrated somehow, but pretty much guessing games until the next few issues are out.
So, I guess HoS Bumblebee and IDW Bumblebee are going to be different? As far as I know, IDW Bumblebee is dead, so unless something super convoluted happens, I imagine they'll have to be.
That's what I'm thinking. They have implied Bumblebee could come back in the annual from what I've heard (waiting for my copy in the post) but I think they'll be separate entities. Wouldn't be the first time this author (John BArber) has incorporated a non-canon story into the wider universe.

Also, you were sort of right about mixed up synopsis, HoS is next issue.
I'm guessing someone made an artistic error with the Predacons not being in their Earth modes while on Cybertron
Uh huh, sure, \"China\", riiiiiiiiiight. It totally wasn\'t meant to be North Korea.
No it was China, the Combaticons joined North Korea.
Though it's also worth noting Razorclaw was operating separately from the rest of his team at that point in time; the Predacons were stuck on Earth while Razorclaw was encouraging survival of the fittest behavior on an asteroid with the rest of the Decepticon army's remnants.
Nah, they had their beast modes in "Primacy," so it's not an overt error, they've just switched between animal and vehicle over time.
My guess is that the hos stuff is being pulled into the "main" universe by means of trans-dimensional fuckery. Possibly facilitated by Micronauts and/Or Brainstorm's Briefcase Time Machine
Did a double check on tfwiki, you're right.
I love this arc
